This conference will bring together scientists and clinicians working on neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases to compare approaches used and the emerging lessons from both categories of disease.
Psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and depression, and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, are placing an increasing burden on the developed world. Technical advances over the past few years, including genome-wide association studies and next generation sequencing studies, have led to the discovery of many predisposing loci for both psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders.
This meeting will synthesise the advances and remaining challenges in the genomics of various brain disorders. We will discuss recent insights into genomic architecture and the emerging biology of disease. This year’s meeting will also highlight systems biology and modelling approaches, population studies and emerging tools and technologies. We will also discuss the use of genomics to drive therapeutics.
